Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Thanks. Not sure how I missed the 376 by V as I was actually looking to see if Eagle Farm ran any those runs in the first place. I knew Virginia ran most of them :D

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

I've just done a list of what I believe to be what routes each depot runs. I've italicised the ones that I'm not certain about. Some of the Southside peak services really are hard to determine if they are out of G, S, W or a combination of the 3. I'm pretty sure I've listed all the routes (run by BC...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

During the day, Eagle Farm does cover a lot of routes (particularly those in the Inner West/North) as Toowong depot has many CNG buses which can't run for as long as the Man diesels or new B8's without refuelling. This is one of the reasons why (mainly before the B8's were introduced to Toowong) it ...

Re: STA Observations 2020

I'm sorry, but where are you pulling that 35 min figure from? It's 20-25 mins at most from Bondi Beach to BJI. One solution which should definitely be looked at is running the 323 during the off-peak and weekends. This way, people living in the Double Bay/Rose Bay areas have direct service to the be...

Re: New bus network arising from CSELR (L2/L3) opening

I think boosting the frequency of Route 504 to every 15 mins during the day (up from 30 mins) would be a much better use of resources than running short runners from Drummoyne all day. Then you can use any remaining resources to run the 501 or 518 every 15 mins, or hell even the M52 up to every 10 m...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Yes, but that's not really an issue in the scheme of things, taking into account the very small proportion of people who would need this assistance, as well as now where its recommend to not travel at all.

Re: New bus network arising from CSELR (L2/L3) opening

Or just get rid of the 508 entirely... It's only 4 am services (2 of which aren't even in proper peak hour) and just the 1 pm outbound service. Need more short runners from Drummoyne? Start it up on Victoria Rd and actually run more than 5 services a day! I'm all for short runners, but if you're gon...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Boarding can still be done through the front door for wheelchairs, prams and other people requiring special assistance. They just want as many people entering/exiting through the rear doors to make sure the drivers come into as little contact with people as possible.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

How many Scania's are left then? Dave, you seemed to have a list going somewhere. I saw 650 on a 590 today and 633? in service a few weeks back. Surely the last one to be retired isn't too far away with the number of B8's being pumped out of Eagle Farm.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

I noticed today that the new QUT buses simply have a desto of "QUT Shuttle" with no route number. I would assume it's so people don't think it's a normal route and try hail it down. In saying that, the newish stop in Kelvin Grove at Carraway St (which I now use) has a printed timetable with "391" a...

Just Route 60 to help the peak overcrowding (and the standing room only at other times). The Maroon Glider will continue to be operated from Carina. Really? I got a seat on route 60 many times when moving between the cultural centre and the valley. But those were not at peak time. Not every off-pea...
